Ensuring that investment professionals receive the best possible training has always been a top priority for us. After all, only sound qualification courses backed by ongoing training for all capital market experts can guarantee a truly professional advice service and corresponding consumer protection in a transparent market. This is one of the reasons why we set up the CEFA training program in 1991.
The CEFA training programme, Certified European Financial Analyst, is an internationally recognized programme that aims to provide a professional and more practical programme covering a true market need by the finance industry.
CEFA is accredited in 27 European countries besides Argentina and Brazil and is well recognized by employers. The CEFA is a benchmarked qualification with challenging exams, ensuring the major professional skills that candidates need. The CEFA Quality is controlled by the EFFAS Review Panel. Our diploma respects local market requirements, conditions and characteristics as well as individual cultures. That´s why the CEFA diploma designation is recognized by the Financial Conduct Authority FCA in UK, the Regulator of Financial Services in Malta and their counterparts in Greece, Portugal Brazil and Argentina.
